Welcome to The Sutton Academy
Year 7 join in World Record Attempt
J K Rowling's "Harry Potter" books have inspired and enthused a whole new generation to read and imagine a different magical world where anything is possible! They bring together all the key elements of great fiction - tension, danger, excitement, comedy and ok ... a little romance too!
On Friday 24th June at 9am, our Year 7 students were privileged to take part in a World Record Attempt for the Largest Reading Lesson Ever in partnership with 75 schools across England. The previous record was set in 2014 with 3,509 students all reading at once. With over 230 students in our Year 7 alone we hope to have contributed to a World Record which will smash that!
The behaviour and conduct of our students was a real credit to Miss Kenny and all the Year 7 tutor team. Even the staff got involved and dressed up as characters!
Reading is massively important to us at The Sutton Academy, and we're determined to drive forward our students' enthusiasm to read and become imaginative and articulate learners.
